This show is tremendously well played! Quite a group of talent comprised for this band. The Jerry covers are very well done. I highly recommend checking these guys out.

EDIT: just found there was a thread about this 26 days ago, but it received zero responses. i'm surprised, these guys are so good together.

Looks like they just started putting up recordings in 2011 - hopefully they will keep adding stuff. Listening to 6-21-2011 now -- I'm hooked!

Where & When in Brooklyn? Maybe we'll go. Thinking of going to Yonder Mtn String Band 10/29 at the Best Buy in Manhattan (the old Nokia).

Dec. 17th at the Brooklyn Bowl. Shitty acoustics there but great atmosphere. Tickets are $10! Doors open at 6 for dinner, drinks, and bowling! Great place for a small intimate show.

my all-time favorite New Orleans (R&R) band has to be Rik Slave & The Phantoms, high energy and some really great song-writing, they've been around for 20+ years and imo they still have it; they're not on the archive (alas), but you can listen/buy several of their releases at bandcamp ... check out Land of Phantoms (2010), their most recent and quite excellent, in particular the last 2 tracks on the album; there are also a couple/few live recordings that you can download for FREE

really? i haven't listened to that particular live recording, but check out Land of Phantoms, if you care to of course, time being precious ... altho, it does often come down to the vocals and whether one finds them listenable; have you ever heard of the band the Jesus Lizard? i had a long-time friend who was absolutely mad about their music, and he so many times tried to get me into them, but i just couldn't get beyond the unlistenableness of Dave Yow's vocals, just plain awful to me, and i find the singer for max creek one of the worst and most unlistenable rock vocalists ever to step foot on stage, but ya know, that's me; one can play guitar like jimi and if i don't like the vocals, i don't care how good ya are

but, all that being said, very cool that you at least sampled!

agreed about scott murawski from max creek. they play some fine music, lot of great covers. great until murawski opens his mouth. his guitar playing is great though. never heard of the jesus lizard band. i've heard of these jesus lizards: (called jesus lizards bc they are lizards that walk on water!)

Thanks for that. I rather agree wiith rden about the vocals, but the studio cuts sound good. Reminding me a bit of Green On Red and Television; both bands' singers grew on me.

Phantoms: very different from the typical New Orleans sound (I love Radiators - interesting to see that post-retirement their bassist has joined/formed the New Orleans Suspects. That guy Zeke could sing: one of the greats).

thanks for checking out the tracks, i love the band, and have been listening to them for several years now, which is not usual for me for any band, i just get exhausted listening to the same ol' crap over and over and have to move onto something new, even if it's old new ... i love Television, with Tom Verlaine probably being one of my all-time favorite musicians, i loved his singing and playing from the very first time i put the needle to marquee moon, brilliant, brilliant, brilliant

Yes, brilliant - but the follow-up album was a big letdown.

I think I mentioned before that I saw Television play City Hall, Newcastle, UK shortly after Marquee Moon came out (? 1977 ?). One of my favourite shows, it even had this unheard-of support band called Blondie who came out first.

Do you know Green On Red? "Here Come The Snakes" is the one I like most, though on "No Free Lunch" they do a good "Smokestack Lightnin'".

ahh, seeing Television/Blondie in '77, i would've loved to have been there (or anywhere where those two bands were playing); i've listened to Blondie bootlegs over the years, but always from when Blondie was huge on the radio, and they just didn't grab me, but in the past year i've actually listened to some Blondie from as early as 1975 and they were not what they popularly became (in large part); in a '77 concert (i think this is the year, i don't have my list handy) Debbie and band do a version of Little Red Rooster that imo is one of the best covers of that song i've ever heard, and definitely the best by a non-blues band hands down

as for Green on Red, i'm familiar with their music, but not overly so; the only song i had on vinyl back in the '80s was the track 'Sixteen Ways' which i have to say was something i played a zillion times ... and of course Gas Food Lodging got lots of play on college radio which was the only radio worth listening to by the time the '80s rolled around

what is GoR's best LP in your opinion?

"Here Come The Snakes" is my favourite album of GOR (I didn't catch them all), and there's a good "Best Of".

Arbuthnot, all this talk of the '70s has reminded me of Kevin Coyne and his wonderful "Marjory Razorblade" album. Do you know his music? Legend has it that he was asked to front The Doors after Jim Morrison's death - he certainly had the chops poetry-wise and was a good singer, although he wasn't blessed with Morrison's good looks. Anyway, he declined the offer, so we'll never know .... Here's three great songs from "Marjory Razorblade" that I think you will like (House On The Hill, Jackie and Edna, Talking To No-One):

i never even heard of Kevin Coyne, but if those tracks you linked are any indication of his style of singing/performance, wow, i need to scout around for a copy of that LP; the first two links in particular are some pretty powerful songs; his vocals are definitely unique but i like his style ... and it's not as though i actually needed more music to seek out, or accumulate, but thanks!
